Impact of a Multidisciplinary Shock Team on Outcomes of patients with Cardiogenic Shock

Project Description: Cardiogenic shock carries a high risk of short term mortality. Patients with cardiogenic shock often require more than the conventional measures for shock management such as early initiation of mechanical circulatory support devices. However, there has been no standard way to assess the need for such support devices in our critical care units. A new multidisciplinary shock team will become available next month and will be responding to cardiogenic shock consults.
